Spotted this on a craigslist listing for an estate sale sitting on a typewriter table. I noticed that it had multiplication, Division, addition keys as well as an equals sign above the '7'. I also noticed the tabulator key which seems to be on some of the model Ps.
I ended up buying the table and the Royal and after adjusting the uppercase letters, which were printing a little too low, and replacing the Olivetti spools for some proper ones.
It works incredibly well, with no cleaning, and prints very nicely. For some reason, for me, the best machines to type on are those where you cannot adjust the touch of the keys.
Left the collection on 3/15/2018.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal P on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal P By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
